The forecast image for April 10-11, 2013 shows a risk for severe weather.

Forecasters are calling for a double dose of severe weather over central Indiana this afternoon and late tonight. Severe thunderstorm warnings have already been issued for a few counties in central Indiana as storms rolled northeast from the Terre Haute area at 35 mph.

Trained spotters are reporting hail up to once inch in diameter in Vigo County from the storms pushing through now. The other main threats include damaging winds, frequent lightning, heavy rainfall and isolated tornadoes.

National Weather Service forecasters say scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible the rest of the evening as a front remains stalled over northern Indiana.

Then the area should expect a lull in storm activity for several hours tonight before severe thunderstorm chances increase again late during the night when a cold front enters the area.

Highs today will range from the mid 70s to low 80s. Winds will be strong out of the southwest at 10 mph to 20 mph and gusting to 30 mph.
